What is Pediatric Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney?

Multicystic dysplastic kidney is a common disorder in which one kidney doesn’t properly form during fetal development.

The kidneys begin to develop in the first trimester of pregnancy and, if something goes wrong, the fetus can end up with one non-functioning kidney that is full of cysts and scar tissue.

In most cases, the other healthy kidney can successfully take over the functions of the non-functioning kidney, such as removing waste from the blood and creating urine.
